Help This Surfer-Photographer In His Battle Against A Brain Aneurysm
Support Myles McGuinness and his family by donating here.
Myles McGuiness was on a surf trip in Costa Rica this summer when he suffered a brain aneurysm.
He had to be taken to a hospital in San Jose, where doctors discovered that the aneurysm caused a subarachnoid hemorrhage.
His son Kieren wrote on Instagram:
“After around 8 hours of being in multiple ambulances, my dad and I finally ended up at a hospital in San Jose, where neurosurgeons performed emergency surgery (they installed a suction tube to help with the swelling and fluid in his brain.) However, he tested positive for covid, so they delayed the surgery needed to clip the aneurysm for two weeks. During this time, my dad was placed into a medically induced coma. Thankfully, neurosurgical clipping was performed once my dad tested negative for covid, and the surgery was a success!”
Myles is a 48 years old surfer and talented commercial photographer, but more importantly, he’s a devoted father and husband. Myles’ cousin Claire Bronster has set up a GoFundMe page to help support the McGuiness family.
Claire writes “The money raised will help with Debra’s travel expenses as she periodically flies home to be with their children, help offset the overhead of their monthly bills and mortgage, and the out-of-pocket medical expenses that will incur.”
